4th anniversary episode

To celebrate our 4th anniversary we have a couple of announcements and a special guest episode:

First of all, we are launching a new 21 episode podcast: “The K-Rock Chelsea Hotel” all about one of the most important icons of popular counter culture: the Chelsea Hotel in Manhattan, NY, with episodes on Edith Piaf, Janis Joplin, Edie Sedgwick, Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock and many many more

Then, we are very pleased to announce (supposedly) reaching 1 million global listens!

Finally, the guest episode Mike did on “The History of England podcast” in which he and David spoke about 14th century Italy around the time of the mercenary adventurer John Hawkwood

120 – Braccio da Montone, early life of a condottiero (1368 – 1406)

We take a look at the early life of the adventurer and sword for hire Andrea Fortebraccio, known as Braccio da Montone. We see his exile from his native Perugia followed by his service for the Montefeltro of Urbino as they battle the Malatesta of Rimini and then the famous Alderigo da Barbiano of the company of Saint George, all the while taking a tour of the papal states during the Great Wester Schism.
